The Bus Stop – Part ll
Joost Custers spotted that the Spa-Francorchamps circuit
is in the process of changing, and Bob Winter forwards
this description of the changes. The Bus Stop will still exist…
the approach to the Bus Stop that's different. Currently, upon exiting
the ultra-fast double left header ("Blanchimont") there
is a short straight (well, it had a soft bend to the right in it,
but it was flat all the way) leading towards the left-hander part
of the Bus Stop.
will mean that immediately after the flat-out Blanchimont double
left hander, there will be a medium right leading into what's now
still wooded area, followed by a sharp left leading into the chicane
(or if you try to visualize it: entering the chicane, you used to
have to turn left, whereas in the future you'll be turning right
into the Bus Stop, got it?).
for this change appears to be safety: by adding this extra medium
right / sharp left combination, speeds through the Blanchimont double
left might be slower. The benefit is that Blanchimont itself will
not need to change.
colour coding of the map (right) doesn't suggest any slowing down
through Blanchimont - or through the right hander that follows.
Perhaps Spa will become even more of a driver's circuit?
